Homework

All this talk, talk, talk
Teachers are assigning me homework
All I want, is to rock, rock, and rock
This homework is a stumbling block

They all say it is the only way
To sharpen my brain
What a drain!
Keep me thoughtful and creative
Encourage me to be innovative
Keep me occupied with some positive motive

Yeah right
I can see some light
The idea is bright

All this talk, talk, talk
I am just doing my homework
As I listen to the clock
Singing out tick, tock, tick, tock
Do not mock, just do your homework

I knew Ogden Nash by the scores of wonderful Limericks he has written until I read this poem. The personality of a banker, the business of banking and the tricks of their trade have all been beautifully described in this amazing poem. Thanks. because they encourage deposits and discourage withdrawals, I know you, you cautious conservative banks!
